San Diego Activities You Can Enjoy Year Round

Everyone knows that San Diego’s perennial warm weather, beautiful beaches, and picturesque coastal backdrop make it a prime vacation destination. And with conditions so perfect, it’s no surprise that this Southern California gem is a mecca for outdoor adventures. Whether you plan on taking to the skies, hitting the water, or staying on land, you’ll have no trouble keeping busy here.

Whenever you visit someplace new, it’s always nice to start by getting a good look at your surroundings – and there’s no better place to do it than from up in the sky. Paragliding, parasailing, and skydiving allow you to soak up all the beauty of the world-famous California coast and is easy to arrange through our Concierge. Gaze across the water as it stretches out toward the horizon, and appreciate the striking geography of Pacific Beach, Mission Bay, and San Diego Bay. Head to Torrey Pines Gliderport, San Diego Parasailing Adventures, or Pacific Coast Skydiving for all your high-flying needs.

Of course, if you want to make the most of this gorgeous location, you’ll need to take advantage of its biggest attraction: the ocean. In the warmer weather, you can cruise the bay on a paddleboard, head out for a surf session, or turn up the adrenaline on a shark dive. Even in the colder months (and it never gets too cold), deep-sea fishing and whale-watching excursions allow you to spend time on the Pacific waters. Check with our Concierge for recommendations and reservations.

There’s also plenty of fun to be had back on dry land. Choose to head inland and explore the impressive network of canyons, foothills, and mountains by foot or bike, or stay near the coast and enjoy the ocean breeze and expansive vistas. Torrey Pines State Reserve is one of the most popular for hiking, and if you go during the spring, you might even glimpse migrating whales from up on the cliffs. Alternatively, if you prefer to end your journey with a refreshing dip, we recommend hiking to Three Sisters Waterfalls or Cedar Creek Falls.

As you can see, for those that like staying active, San Diego has no shortage of outdoor adventures easy to get to from Pacific Terrace Hotel. Make sure you save time for enjoying Southern California’s other favorite past time: lounging on the sand just steps from the hotel and soaking up the sun.
